Messed Up Dreams
I have been having some really funky and messed up dreams as of late. Last night I had several, the first one that I recalled as I was laying on the couch sleeping (ironically, that was where I was actually sleeping), in my dream I heard the front screen door open, then someone jiggles the lock. I couldn’t move to investigate it for some reason. Then the screen door closed and I heard them messing with the window, it was pitch dark out and I couldn’t see anything, nor could I move. Then they went back to the door and they tried to force their way in. I recalled thinking that they will never kick in the steel door with 5-inch steel screws holding it all together. Then I actually woke up and looked around, all was quiet, cats were sound asleep around me, and it was actually fairly light out.
Later I had a dream that the neighbor’s granddaughter’s cat was running down their driveway, I saw it running towards the street, but I looked and didn’t see any cars, then their 5-year-old granddaughter was running after the cat. I looked and saw a white multi-wheeled limousine coming down the road and starting to pull into my next-door neighbor’s driveway. I notice the cat’s tail is now stuck under one of the wheels, I can’t move (I had a theme going on I guess last night) and I watched as the cat tried to free itself and avoid the next tire on the limo. Then I heard the little girl scream, she was now caught under one of the tires and all I could do was watch. It was horrible.
Last week, I was having dreams about me and my family members all getting in horrific car crashes. I got t-boned in the van with my wife and daughter in it, which caused the van to violently roll a number of times, I came to with blood in my eyes and couldn’t see them, that was when I woke up. One involved my son and daughter-in-law, where they ran off the road and down a steep hill and into a tree. Not sure how I was looking over them like I was a ghost. They both came too and were pinned in the car when I woke up dripping in sweat.
Gee, thanks Cymbalta, my buddy, my friend, NOT!
Wow, I’m glad I haven’t had any nightmares like that. I don’t think that I could handle too much of those. I’m a strong person, but some of those would really mess me up. I hope that you “flipped” the channel before cat and girl got smashed. God willing, I hope you don’t have any more nightmares like that.
Dude, it sounds like we got off on the wrong foot on my first post. I have a tendency to come on strong and piss people with my direct approach and sarcasm. The more pain I have to deal with the more direct I become. Thank you for welcoming me to your blog. I apologize for my previous comment.
I can say that I have had some really messed up dreams on some of the medications that I have been on. My worst dream was that I was teaching my 6th-grade class when a wolf jumped through the window of my classroom and started to attack my students. It was actually eating them and the rest of the students were standing in a single file line waiting to be eaten. It was graphic and violent, blood and body parts everywhere. I woke up shaking and sweating, it was not a very pleasant nightmare. I have had others, but not nearly as graphic as that one.
those are some messed up dreams u have been having i couldnt imagine waking up after a dream like that.
Being used to being in control and leading, I can understand how these dreams must have made you feel. I know how they would have made me feel. Sometimes being a Marine is a curse, but most of the time it is just a rewarding blessing.
